Thank You For Supporting the Preservation of Le Parc des Bouillides


Would like to thank all of you who supported our action and shared these posts on facebook.

We are positive that in the long run we will succeed in protecting our little paradise from destruction.

Today it’s raining and it’s a blessing. The trees, the animals needed water badly. The river Bouillides is back and running down the park.

For those who haven’t signed the petition, you can still do it until mid december on:

Again thank you so much for your support.

The Project “Ligne Nouvelle” is unacceptable


The whole project Ligne Nouvelle by the politicians and the Railway Company, SNCF, is unacceptable.

The 3 different routes imply a lot of destruction of  trees, lands, animals, properties, and the construction of tunnels under habitations, a double viaduct etc.

This is outrageous!

Can you please speak up and let the SNCF know what you think on their website before mid december?

Thank you in advance.



What to do to Save the Parc des Bouillides (on the French Riviera) From Destruction

The Parc des Bouillides located around Valbonne, French Riviera is a very popular park in the South East part of France.

Everybody comes here to enjoy a “free” gorgeous area. You can chill out, play, run, practice sports in a preserved environment but not for long…

It’s a must to stop the local politicians and the French Railway Company, SNCF, from destroying the Parc des Bouillides as they want to implement a railway station in the core of it!

4500 people live around the park plus many trees, animals, even a rare species of turtle.

Please help us out. In advance thank you for supporting its conservation by signing the petition online:

In order to help save the Park des Bouillides from a TER line right in the core of it, please join us on facebook:










Une gare à la place du Terrain d’Athletisme!?



Imaginez cet espace sportif dans cet ecrin de verdure, qui rejouit tant de personnes qui vivent à Sophia ou y travaillent, être remplacé par une Gare?

Doivent ils TOUT détruire? Tout ce qui est beau qui nous ressource et nous permets de faire face à un stress constant doit il être rasé pour faire  gagner du temps à des voyageurs pressés?


Mobilisez les gens autour de vous.

Ce projet ne passera pas!

Quand ils auront coupé le dernier arbre, pollué le dernier ruisseau, pêché le dernier poisson.
Alors ils s’apercevront que l’argent ne se mange pas.

Access Riviera

Parc des Bouillides is on the border of Sophia Antipolis and Antibes, but is also classed as a local park of Valbonne (though it is not near Valbonne village as such).

It is a large park with established trees, grassed areas for picnics and ball games and a small stream.  There are lots of shady areas due to the trees, and water fountains and picnic tables at various locations.

The park has many wide concrete walkways perfect for children’s bikes or scooters, and also for people who are wheelchair-bound as the walkways are excellent condition and flat, paved surfaces.

There is a fenced children’s playground with climbing structures, slides, rocking horses and it is entirely floored with safety rubber matting so is good for little ones. The downside is that this playground is not shaded, so be aware on hot days.
